Blue proves the colour of choice among today’s Irish brides

by Caroline@hitched

The latest survey findings from leading Irish wedding planning website hitched.ie have revealed that blue is the colour of choice among today’s Irish brides.

With a host of blue shades to choose from, it’s no surprise so many couples are selecting this for their big day. As such a versatile and complimentary colour it can be great if you have to match your bridesmaid dresses with lots of different hair colours and skin tones. What’s more, it’s also likely to keep the groom happy – who is less likely to put up a fuss than if the bride is asking him to incorporate a more feminine colour into his wedding attire.

Site Editor Caroline Hendry says:
“Purple colour schemes appear to have dominated the market in recent years so it’s exciting to see this new colour scheme breaking forward in the wedding market. Here at hitched.ie we have seen some really beautiful weddings featuring vintage pale blue colour schemes, right through to vibrant cobalt blue styles, a trend that appears to have trickled down through the catwalks and into bridal fashion.”

In contrast, white as a colour choice was selected by just 3% of brides – suggesting not many people in 2012 took style advice from the Duchess of Cambridge as might have been expected; even after all the coverage of Pippa Middleton’s notorious white bridesmaid gown. In fact, white as a colour schemes came in as the least popular choice for 2012.

hitched.ie have spent the past 12 months surveying Irish newlyweds and found beautiful shades of blue to be the most popular colour choice for Irish brides. It was found that 21% of couples who had married in the last year had chosen a blue colour scheme, with purple coming a close second with 20% of couples and pink in third, with 12%.
